Listening offline

Listening offline

I was told that by getting Spotify Premium I'd be able to listen to music on Spotify while offline, both on PC and on my phone. However, after getting Premium I found out that appearently I can only listen to music offline if I have first downloaded said music. This is not what I signed up for, especially since I have limited memory for downloaded music. Is there possibly another way to listen to music offline or is this it?

Check out the support article on listening offline:


In order for the Spotify app to work offline with no internet connection, it has to be able to grab the music from somewhere. That is why the music needs to be downloaded into the Spotify app so that offline use can work. There is no other way to listen offline than to download the music to the app so that the app can access those downloaded files when you are offline. The app cannot access the internet in offline mode.


Hopefully this answers your question.
